Accrington Stanley owner Andy Holt has slammed the shameful behaviour of a section of Fleetwood Town fans following vandalism, spitting and alleged attacks on supporters and 'townsfolk'.

Andy said in his six years in charge of the club "these are the worst fans and aggro I’ve encountered".

Incidents were reported "before, during and after" Saturday's 5-1 win with a 14-year-old boy reportedly taken to hospital after an attack and another woman racially abused.

LancsLive has contacted Lancashire Police and Fleetwood Town for comment.

Andy hit out on social media at the "idiots" who "flooded and destroyed our toilet facilities" and posted a picture of the damage.

He also claimed some Fleetwood supporters "spat at our players" and "were running round our own indiscriminately punching townsfolk".

The Stanley owner has now pledged to offer only the minimum allocation to Fleetwood fans when the club next plays at the Wham Stadium.

The tickets will also be "more expensive" and Cod Army supporters will not be allowed in the bars and hospitality and "no alcohol or food sales for away fans".

In a series of angry tweets, Andy said: "So… before, during and after the @ASFCofficial game vs @ftfc I was getting texts and messages about their fan behaviour.

"Not all fans. Some idiots. I had a good chat to their supporters club earlier in the day. Decent folk.

"Anyhow, these idiots were running round our own indiscriminately punching townsfolk going about their Saturday, for no reason.

"These idiots flooded and destroyed our toilet facilities that we take pride in keeping clean and in good order.

"These idiots spat at our players and wouldn’t respond to our light touch approach by stewards. They spoilt the day. I accept my responsibility as the towns club owner. And it’s a shame that the many are affected for these idiots.

"A bill will be sent to @ftfc for damage. If we play them next season the absolute minimum number of tickets will be allocated.

"The tickets will be more expensive. They will not be allowed in our bars and hospitality. There will be no alcohol or food sales for away fans. The only toilets available will be steel containers.

"I will ask our @officalassc1 to work directly with their counterparts at Fleetwood to try to ensure decent match going fans don’t miss out too much.

"In 6 years @ASFCofficial these are the worst fans and aggro I’ve encountered. I’m don’t need authorities to tell me what to do. I’m not wearing this, not for our police, our stewards, our club, our town, our people.

"Shameful behaviour. Unacceptable. All fans punished for a few clowns. I would post the messages I received during the match but it identifies people. They will be forwarded to police."

Fleetwood Town supporters page Cods Chat tweeted in response: "Some interesting posts over on @AndyhHolt feed! Worth a look, looks like some shocking behaviour from our lot today!"

Hyndburn MP Britcliffe said: "Absolutely appalling behaviour by away fans from Fleetwood! I expect @ftfc to take appropriate action when they identify those involved! Absolutely disgusting behaviour.

"Also heard that they have made random attacks on member of the public. I’ll be loud and clear, this is not how we behave in our community and is not accepted."
